    Awesome – The goal should be to train shelter dogs until no more dogs have to be euthanized.

    These organizations should consider taking as many dogs as they can from animal shelters – a win win for everyone.

    This is not a good program for service dogs. I had one of these dogs and due to the prison raising my dog was fear aggressive to basic stimuli thus requiring retirement. These dogs don’t get enough socialization in prisons.

    Hopefully less work in isolation cells, reports or diverting resources to hospital care!
    Due to outdoing each other, without always fighting.
